    but surely this is not advisable?

    Yeah, that’s generally considered a pretty major no-no among responsible gun owners. One of the fundamental rules is “Never point a firearm at anything you do not want destroyed.” Maybe he’s just wanting to get rid of some of his butt and doesn’t have the willpower for diet and exercise?

    If that isn't photoshopped, he should be fired.

    A deputy must always be responsible for any weapon they carry at all times.

    Having been shot with a shotgun before, I’m pretty sure that I wouldn’t like to risk the results of things going wrong there.

    I got hit from much greater range than that, and I didn’t like it much. At that range, I’m pretty sure it would leave a mark. :lol::lol::lol:

    If I'm going to get 'shot in the ..." this is my weapon of choice.

    The muzzle should be couple of inches to the left, where his head is.

    There's a reasonable chance that the image could be photoshopped. The Winchester shotgun is seen in an almost straight-on side view, and appears to perhaps be a little on the smallish side in proportion to the police officer, though he does appear to be a 'bigun' himself.

    I dunno, the possibility of it being a setup image is too great to take without a measure of suspicion.

    A breech loader would seem more appropriate...

    who knew of 'butt chugging'....

    I doubt that’s real but mainly because it looks like a police officer or similar, who should be quite aware of gun safety.

    Not all humans are so aware, one only has to look at data on people who “accidentally” shoot themselves or others, and I’ve been around a few who astonish me with their careless handling. My first exposure to that was in 1963 while deer hunting with a bow in Michigan. We came across a couple of guys grouse hunting and as they stopped to talk to us one of them set his shotgun butt stock on the ground, then leaned his ample belly on the barrel while he chattered. I was all of twelve years old and my Dad wouldn’t let me have even a BB gun, but I knew firearms well enough to be utterly shocked. A gun is always loaded and treated thusly to me, and I’ve got a few.

    It would be interesting if it were a Winchester Model 1911 .
